Home-made dog bisquits
[Return to Topics]

Someone has given a recipe for making dog bisquits, but I'm not clear on one calls for "wheat flour". Does this mean regular white flour (it's made from wheat) or does it mean "whole wheat" flour? I want to make this, and would appreciate anyone taking the time to help me out.
Thanks, Joy in Sandston, VA

I have always wondered who did the taste testing when they come out with "new and improved" dog food. From all the follow ups, now I know! lol

Use Wheat flour. It is different than white flour it is a brown color. My mom makes dog treats for others and sells. I found this out when she asked me to pick some up and drop it off on my way home from work. She makes them and sells them. She has quite a few different recipes. The treats are not good for humans though. I can in one day and stuck my finger in the batter. I told her it was kinda bland. She told me to quit eating the dog treat batter. I told her she could of warned me, but she said NAH. Now ya have to be careful going over there, my poor dad never knows what he is eating. LOL

I sell a version of home made dog bisquits (made by a local woman) in my gift shop. She uses white flour and also adds carrot pulp. It has taken her years to perfect her recipe. Humans can also eat these bisquits but they dont look to tasty to me.

My wife's recipes are all dog biscuit ones. Guess she doesn't know that and I don't think I'll tell her.

Sometimes things get "ruff" my friend - Couple innocent questions: How do you "mark" your biscuits and aren't you supposed to sleep in the dog house like the rest of us? lol

Well boys, it's easy to get confused if you been eating that dog food very long. Reminds me of back when I was flyin' the bush regular, I carried fifty pounds of dog food for emergencies. One winter I landed on Wellesey Lake over by Snag. Boys, it was cold and I forgot to bring my engine heater so the next mornin' the ol' Cessna 180 wouldn't go. Well, ol' Gimpleg and me was down there about a week or so with nothin' to eat but dog food. Got use to the tast but it took two months for us to get over the urge to...well, you know.... every time we seen a tree or fire plug.

OH, you mark your OWN bicuits - now i get it. lol- Dern fool, you of anybody should know to drain the oil when ya land, shroud the engine and light a can of Sterno under the oil can under the shroud - THEN go fishin, if there's any winter left! Otherwise skip sleep to keep the Sterno lit. :)

Bout the same happened, here, a few years back; lady kept buyin' dog food in the fifty pound bags, from the local store, the clerk knew she didn't have a dog, so asked her what she was doing with so much dog food, said she "was a feedin' it to her husband"! Well, clerk told her it was gonna' kill him! Couple months later she quit buyin the stuff , and the clerk asked her why......she saild her husband had died.....right away the clerk said "it was the dog food that killed him, wasn't it? Lady said, "No, not 'xactly......he was just layin' out on the road licken his -----, and a truck run over him"!!
